I booked Mandala Desa after stumbling upon it on TA and after looking at the website booked my stay because it just felt right!!! And I was not wrong!!! Email communication with Jacinta prior to travelling to Bali for the first time was spot on. No question was too much trouble to answer. I was picked up from the airport... More

Just leaving today after a wonderful few days here- a lovely, peaceful location with charming helpful staff. Should not be put off by the distance from Ubud- they arrange flexible transportation to there and indeed all over Bali.

Mandala Desa is set on the edge of a village with views over rice fields and jungle. It is peaceful, in a rural way (chickens, roosters, dogs). Jacintha runs a wonderful and personal service, the staff are friendly and helpful, the meals and drinks are delicious and reasonably priced. It is a way out of Ubud, but there is a... More

It was great to wake up in the countryside near Ubud with such a peaceful view. The food was great and the staff was amazingly friendly and laughing all the time and they're willing to help and advise you. Rooms were very comfortable and clean.

In June 2014 we spent a lovely two weeks at Mandala Desa and felt really pampered by Jacintha and her staff! The Mandala Desa resort lies in the midst of a beautiful ‘Dessa’ landscape, where we had a good view of the farmers planting and harvesting their ‘Paddi’-rice. In the mornings we awoke by the sounds of the local roosters... More

We recently stayed at Mandala Desa near Ubud and we loved it. We were welcomed by the owner Jacinta and staff as soon as we pulled in to the driveway. We stayed in a spacious, tastefully furnished villa with a wonderful outside shower and spa bath. We were able to breakfast on our verandah or under our Bali gazebo surrounded... More

I agree with another reviewer thought of not posting a review so this resort is not overrun. Set in the rice fields next to a Balinese village, this feels like the real Bali that has almost been destroyed by mass tourism. We arrived late, had a wonderful dinner on the verandah and at ten o'clock heard a man's voice chanting... More

Gorgeous hotel with beautiful rooms and the views of the rice fields at all times of the day were delightful. I will start off with the cons so I can end on a positive note. - The pool really is not suited to young children. It gets very deep very quickly, there is no paddling area. - On two occasions...

Wake up to sunrise by the rice fields and chill out within nature's compound. Mandala Desa is a haven for city folks looking for a quiet gateaway. Hidden twenty minutes outside the touristy areas of Ubud, Mandala Desa is a bungalow with five accommodation rooms of different sizes. All rooms have access views to the beautiful paddy fields. The rooms... More

To be honest, I don't want to post my comment here as I don't want this property to be too popular and too touristy. I wanted to keep it as our special place to visit again. But thinking about the owner Jacinta who was wonderful, I decided to post it as I thought she deserves it. We tend to stay... More
